Comics & Graphic Novel

Bird Brain by Chuck Mullin

This was not what I expected going in. I have not seen the author’s works previously and therefore, did not know the kind of content it had. Since I usually like checking out compilations of comic strips, I decided to give it a shot.

Most of the comic strips that I follow, and some of those that I do not but happen to read occasionally have a layer of hidden meaning about how people view life. I think it is easier to bundle up the truth between the laughs generated from simple gags within thought bubbles. These comics have its message more boldly presented, the drawings are not even the main attraction. I think it will resonate with anyone who has ever had mild panic attacks at the unknown. The author has bared her soul in the pages between the clusters of comics under particular headings.

The graphics were not my cup of tea, but the message is pretty solid. It is a heavy read and not funny in the ‘Haha’ sense.

I received an ARC thanks to NetGalley and the publishers, but the review is entirely based on my own reading experience.
